I’m not the focal point as the pick-and-roll guy all the time, so it kind of changes it up for me. He’s been active.”Poeltl had 12 points, nine rebounds and matched a career high with five blocks.Trailing 76-67, New York had an opportunity to pull closer but Kadeem Allen missed a contested layup as Aldridge raced back on defense following a turnover. Gay followed with a 3-pointer to extend the Spurs’ lead to 79-67.“We just had too many guys making too many mistakes and you can’t play with holes in the dam when the Spurs have you going like that,” New York coach David Fizdale said.TIP-INSKnicks: Smith missed the game with a sore lower back. Fizdale said the team is unsure how the injury occurred, but Smith is day-to-day. “His back just kind of went out on him,” Fizdale said. “He had a couple of collisions there during the last game (Tuesday against Indiana).” … New York is 7-30 away from home, which is one more road win than Cleveland, Phoenix and Dallas. . Mitchell Robinson blocked two shots, extending his streak of consecutive games with a block to 26. Among Knicks rookies, only Patrick Ewing’s 28 straight games with a block is longer in franchise history. … The Knicks’ previous win in San Antonio was Jan. 2, 2014, behind a double-double from Carmelo Anthony. . Forward Noah Vonleh did not return after injuring his right ankle in the first half. Fizdale said Vonleh will undergo an X-ray when the team returns to New York.

(AP Photo/Darren Abate)SAN ANTONIO— Three weeks after hitting a low point with a “pathetic” performance on Broadway, the Spurs hit a high note against the New York Knicks.LaMarcus Aldridge had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and San Antonio beat the Knicks 109-83 on Friday night to extend its season-best winning streak to seven games.ADVERTISEMENT “It just feels good,” San Antonio forward Rudy Gay said. “Things are clicking. Playing defense. Even when the ball is not going in like we want it to, we’re still getting wins, and that’s how you know we’re getting better as a team.”Gay had 12 points in 19 minutes after missing two games and losing 10 pounds because of the flu.The Spurs dominated defensively, which was in stark contrast to what Popovich deemed a “pathetic performance defensively” in their previous meeting with the Knicks.New York snapped an 18-game skid at home, routing the Spurs 130-118 on Feb. 24 as part of San Antonio’s worst Rodeo Road Trip ever. The Spurs have had a greater sense of urgency since going 1-7 on that road trip and it continued against the team with the league’s worst record (13-66).New York had 16 turnovers and shot 41 percent from the field.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Spurs: San Antonio is 24-1 at home this season when leading after the third quarter.

Terry Cummings sits atop the list with 1,818 points followed by Artis Gilmore’s 1,479. … Forbes has 143 3-pointers this season after going 3 for 5 against the Knicks. He has the most 3-pointers in a season of any undrafted player in Spurs history.SAVE THE BATSWith bats buzzing the court at the AT&T Center recently during Spurs games, Fizdale was asked before the game what he would do if he saw one.“I like animals, I’m an animal lover,” Fizdale said. “Hopefully we can catch it and let it go where it needs to go.”The Spurs’ mascot, The Coyote, has emerged in three games in a Batman costume attempting to corral the winged mammals with a hand-held net. The Coyote successfully captured a bat on Feb. 2 during the team’s game against New Orleans. Fizdale said he would want a net, too, if a bat emerged.“Yeah, I mean we don’t want to hurt it,” Fizdale said. “It’s just a little bat. Our guys will probably freak out.”Fortunately for the Knicks, no bats were sighted.UP NEXTKnicks: Host L.A. Lakers on Sunday night.Spurs: Host Portland on Saturday night.

Several Escape Death

first_imgWhat would have been a serious disaster missed residents of Buzzy Quarter on January 11, 2014 when the brakes of a container truck failed and its  driver lost control.The truck came from the road crossing Capitol Bypass stretching down to the former Ministry of Labor.Eye witnesses told the Daily Observer that they saw the truck passing by without knowing that it had mechanical problems. Much to their surprise, it suddenly crashed into the fence surrounding the old Ministry of Labor building undergoing renovation.The slum community of Buzzy Quarter is home to hundreds of residents, many of which sell along the roadside while others have their provision centers near the very area where the truck crashed.The level of damage caused by the truck has not been made clear. However, when the Daily Observer reached the scene of the accident, the broken window glasses were shattered on the side where the wreckage of the truck is still parking.When the police were contacted on January 13, 2014, spokesperson Sam Collins said the Accident Division was still compiling its report to order the driver and company that owns the truck to court.According to Mr. Collins, container trucks are not allowed to ply the streets of Monrovia until the evening hours when traffic is less busy. The driver refused to abide by this rule and bypassed the main road leading to the central part of the city.Mr. Collins said the driver is in custody awaiting a court date, and they were still assessing the damage done to the building to establish the cost.He stressed that there is a restriction on containers plying the streets in the day until 6 p.m. when traffic has reduced in the streets.He warned all to abide by the restriction to avoid embarrassment with the police.Even though the police spokesman admitted to the rule being in place to restrict containers from plying the streets of Monrovia, it remains quite challenging for this restriction to be maintained.At most times in the day, 20 or 40-foot containers are seen plying streets and delivering goods from the seaport.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

AFL Assured of Better Budgetary Support

first_imgHouse Committee Chair on National Defense, Rep. George S. Mulbah, has assured authorities at the Ministry of National Defense (MOD) that the next budgetary year would be huge to benefit personnel of the new Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).According to the Bong County lawmaker, the campaign to increase the budgetary allotment for the MOD vis-à-vis the AFL is to ease constraints the soldiers have endured over the years, thus excluding them from undertaking, and or accessing training in specialized areas. Since the restructuring of the new AFL in 2006, the numerical strength of enlisted men and personnel of the Army has remained constant owing to “inadequate” budgetary allocation at the National Legislature.Rep. Mulbah made the statement Wednesday, February 26, during program marking the official turn over ceremony of engineering equipment to the AFL. The equipment comprising pieces of earth-moving machines, mixers, excavators, etc were donated by the Government of the People’s Republic of China to the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) and the people of Liberia. The ceremony, which was held at the Barclay Training Center (BTC) on UN Drive in Monrovia, brought together an array of government and members of the international community.“If the Government of China had not made it possible for us to get these equipment, we would have been complaining to the Legislature for budgetary allotment for several other things including military hardware in the next fiscal year budget. This year budget will be the budget of the AFL, and this is the time Liberia will take full responsibility of the army,” Rep. Mulbah declared.Chairman Mulbah, however, promised to work with the AFL stating, “We will campaign in the Legislature for increment of the AFL budget.”Turning over the keys of equipment to the Acting Chair of the Cabinet, Internal Affairs Minister, Morris Dukuly, Chinese Amb. Zhang Yue said, “In the past decade, China has been active in assisting the Liberian Government and the people in their endeavors to reconstruct their country. We take Liberia’s development a priority, as our assistance is aimed at bringing tangible benefits with the development of bilateral relations, the exchanges and cooperation between the people’s Liberation Army of China and the AFL.” According to him, ever since 2004, through mutual military exchanges and cooperation, Chinese Ministry of National Defense has provided the Liberian side with nearly US$10 million worth of military assistance and 194 training slots.“In the coming month, seven AFL officers and soldiers will be going to China to join the new training program.”He disclosed that China appreciates the achievements made by the Liberian Government to develop national economy, speed up infrastructure construction and bring benefit to ordinary people.“According to the Protocol Signed between China and Liberia, Chinese government not only has provided the Liberian side with engineering equipment on gratis (free) to the value of US$4M, and also will send an engineering experts team to Liberia to work with the Engineering Company of AFL.”The team, he said, will arrive in Liberia in early next month. Ambassador Zhang also noted that it was not only of the hardware, but of the capacity that will enhance AFL to contribute to Liberia’s social and economic recovery; raise AFL’s profile in terms of civil-military relations.Internal Affairs Minister Morris Dukuly, who received the keys to the equipment on behalf of  President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, expressed gratitude to China for the level of partnership and support giving to the Liberian Government in her post-conflict recovery drive.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

City Council hoping for debt-free 2018

first_imgThe Mayor and City Council (M&CC) is hoping to sustain itself with viable plan to stay out of debt.This is according to Mayor Patricia Chase Green, who, during an interview with Guyana Times, said that she was confident of her plan to do so.The Mayor was asked on Tuesday about the constant debt crisis at City Hall.“As of now, we don’t owe Cevon’s and Purans, anything other for the work that they have done. I think that payment would come on time. We are going to look at it; our finance committee would meet. As I said that we should not be owing,” she stated.She explained how they would be dealing with payment to these companies, “While our contracts say that you have a 90 days’ grace period to pay them what is owed, if you take 90 days to pay them for January you talking about till April, while you wait till April to pay for January, you have February and March coming down the line. We would try to pay much earlier so we don’t have that backlog that we had, because the Government has indicated that they are not going to take us out of any deep waters.”In hopes to further control the garbage situation, the City Council is also expecting to purchase two garbage trucks this year, utilising the $200 million allocated to them by the Government in the 2018 budget.In late 2017, the City Council found itself in hot water, owing hundreds of millions to garbage collection contractors, Cevon’s Waste Management Inc and Puran Bros Disposal Service. In an attempt to deal with this backlog of payment, Councillors had voted to seek a bailout from the Government through the Communities Ministry. The bailout had been granted until December 31.last_img read more

Saudi Arabia offers to fund new Iraq football stadium

first_img0Shares0000Iraqi supporters watch their team at a training session ahead of a home friendly against Saudi Arabia in Basra on February 28, 2018 © AFP/File / HAIDAR MOHAMMED ALIBAGHDAD, Iraq, Mar 6 – Saudi Arabia has offered to fund a new football stadium in Iraq, as FIFA prepares to decide whether to lift its ban on Iraq hosting competitive international matches.The offer came in a telephone call between King Salman and Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Monday evening, the prime minister’s office said. It provided no further details about the cost of the stadium or where it might be located.It follows an international friendly between the two countries in Iraq’s third city Basra on February 28, their first on Iraqi soil in 40 years.The king described the game, which Iraq won 4-1 in front of a capacity 60,000 crowd, as a “success”, Abadi’s office said.It was watched by Asian Football Confederation head Salman bin Ibrahim Al-Khalifa who said “the time has come” to end the three-decade ban on Iraq hosting competitive international matches.FIFA is due to decide on March 16.The country has not played full internationals on home turf since its 1990 invasion of Kuwait.The ban, covering all but domestic matches, stayed in place after the US-led invasion of 2003 toppled dictator Saddam Hussein.It was briefly lifted in 2012, but a power outage during an Iraq-Jordan match in the Iraqi Kurdish capital Arbil led FIFA to promptly reinstate it.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgIf you meet Donegal man Dessie Gallagher in a bar, chances are he’ll have been asked if he’s drinking Bulmers.The well-known Letterkenny actor has become the face of the cider in Ireland after starring in a series of hilarious commercials for the drink.But his latest advert for the Bulmer’s brand, named Orchardomics, is probably his funniest and most high-profile to date. Dessie can be seen showing economic guru David McWilliams around the Bulmer’s orchard and pointing to areas where they are ‘doing their bit’ for the economy.In one scene he points to a man bending down to pick up some apples and tells McWilliams “that’s the bottom line.”In another scene Dessie, who grew up in Letterkenny’s famous Burmah, shows some joggers dashing along a river and calls it “a run on the banks.”In the final scene, McWilliams asks Dessie “what about depreciation? To which Dessie replies “David – we have total depreciation for what you’re doing.” The advert is father of two Dessie’s ‘bread and butter’ as he is also involved in a number of other projects.His past credits include Reign of Fire, Killinascully, I Keano and The Closer We Get.EndsDESSIE GIVES MCWILLIAMS A LESSON IN ‘ORCHARDOMICS’ IN LATEST TV COMMERCIAL was last modified: June 15th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:actor Dessie GallagherBulmersDavid McWilliamslast_img read more


first_imgBY CATHAL MacSUIBNE IN NEWRY: While last week’s patchy performance against Meath was generally viewed as a welcome eye-opener for Donegal, today’s against Down suggests that Jim McGuinness’ men have some serious work ahead of them if they’re to slay the Oak Leaf County on May 25th.The anticipated response following the game in Ballybofey on Sunday last did not materialise in Pairc Esler and instead the county’s followers are left with more questions than answers. In some ways it is tricky to judge today’s game by comparing the teams as in truth neither side looked in any way impressive in what was a scrappy, error-strewn affair. The blustery conditions led to both teams over and under hitting passes and you wouldn’t have guessed that these sides contested the provincial championship showpiece less than two years ago. Down looked dangerous early on and scythed through Donegal’s unusually porous central channel for some easy scores. They had a few half-goal chances in the opening exchanges and when Niall Madine finally did register a major, it would prove to be the game’s crucial score as they never relinquished the lead it gave them. The main problem again today was the kick-out and it really is becoming a serious worry as we look ahead to Championship 2014. Again Donegal tried to create a large gap for their midfielders with even more emphasis being put on the defenders in creating that space. Corner backs Karl Lacey and Eamonn McGee were instructed to stay tight to the touchline on Paul Durcan’s kickouts – this either meant they were an option for short kick-outs on any occasion they weren’t picked up by their marker or it left the centre of the field largely free for Martin McElhinney and Rory Kavanagh. The problem is that Donegal without Neil Gallagher are severely depleted under their own restarts – and teams know this. Therefore opponents are happy to close off those potential short kick-outs and force Durcan to kick long. We saw it in the first half in particular today and of course we saw it to devastating effect in last year’s Mayo massacre when a far from fit Gallagher was dominated by an inspired Aidan O’Shea.With Down on top in the middle and gaining primary ball, they ran at Donegal with Mark Poland especially causing numerous problems. Poland is one of the classiest footballers in the country and he is very difficult to tackle such is his small stature and low centre of gravity. Leo McLoone at centre back tried to get forward as much as possible in an attempt to drag the Longstone clubman away from his centre-forward station and to limit his effect on the game; it was to no avail however and instead it led to space for Poland and his team mates to exploit and this they did. Frank McGlynn took over marking duties for parts of the second half and did have a bit more success but the conundrum remained largely unsolved.Kevin McKernan and Peter Turley were excellent at midfield, providing power and physicality while the hosts’ defence did well on sharpshooters Michael Murphy and Colm McFadden. In contrast to Donegal’s tactic of a roaming centre back, Down’s Aidan Carr held his position and acted as a screen in front of his full back line, particularly in the second half when the wind-assisted Donegal played a more direct game.Much was made last year of Down referencing the McGuinness template in the Ulster semi-final between the teams at Breffni Park and in particular the defensive aspects of it. On today’s showing it appears that they have now subsumed the entire portfolio with their much-improved attacking play and ability to commit more numbers to breaks a measure of their evolution. In spite of the erratic nature of today’s display, Donegal could easily have won the game such was the amount of chances wasted both before and after the short whistle – they recorded twelve wides in all. Corner forward McFadden was guilty of two poor misses from frees and his style of getting height on the ball is a risky one when the breeze is as strong as it was today; on both occasions the wind carried the ball to the right and wide on his own side, the cardinal sin for a free taker.McLoone had a bit more freedom after the break and was one of the few Donegal players who could be satisfied with their performance. He notched one wonderful point when he showed great intelligence by opting to flick the ball past an on-rushing Mourne defender instead of trying to gain possession immediately and being swallowed up in the tackle – he collected the ball on the other side and stroked over.That had come after a fine score by Martin McElhinney as Donegal started the second half with much more intent and purpose in their play. McElhinney was excellent throughout and bar one bad miss in front of the posts he performed admirably for his side throughout. With the current problems the team is experiencing around the middle third it would be no surprise to see Gallagher return alongside the current midfield pairing as opposed to replacing one of them, with Kavanagh or McElhinney possibly lining out at wing forward.The cavalry arrived in the form of Gallagher, Patrick McBrearty and David Walsh but even they couldn’t change the direction of the game and McCartan’s charges saw it out with two points to spare.It certainly isn’t a time for panic in the ranks or anything of that nature but there needs to be signs of improvement in the remaining two league games to show that the solutions to the problems that have arisen in the past week are working. It may well be three games with promotion chances and a subsequent divisional final spot still looking likely; bottom side Louth the next visitors to the North West. It is ironic though that it was this very same weekend last year, on St Patrick’s weekend, where the first cracks began to emerge. On the Saturday night in Pairc Ui Rinn in Cork, Donegal’s second half performance was light years away from the heights they had reached the previous summer. A week later we saw a similar show in Castlebar with Mayo deserving winners following another poor exhibition from the men in green and gold. The next few weeks will go a long way in telling us what 2014 holds in store.
